We have so much to say about S. Ann Dunham Soetoro’s recently released, redacted passport files that we need a new thread. Feel free to discuss those records and anything else that’s on your mind. Give Lolo’s 97-page immigration document dump the once over, too. Let’s have some fun and play like Polarik.
What hangs together? What’s obviously bogus? For background, start here:
He has all the pertinent links.
I’ll start it off by repeating something I read on Mario’s blog: It appears that the hand that wrote “Barack Hussein Obama” on page 2 of S. Ann Soetoro’s 1968 passport amendment differs from the one that wrote “Soebarkah”. Compare the printing on page 1 with the writing on page 2.
By George (Obama), I think he’s got it!
So S. Ann Soetoro wanted to exclude little Soebarkah from her passport. Did someone later on, perhaps decades later, write “Barack Hussein Obama” above Soebarkah, put parentheses around the Indonesian name, and then cross out the entire thing? Did page 2 originally say ONLY “Soebarkah”–the name of the child she wanted excluded from her 1965 passport? What was his name in 1968? Did S. Ann Soetoro exclude him from her passport because he had his very own Indonesian passport that he could use? Is that why, when she tried to bring him back in 1971, she had to request a waiver to enter the country with him? Because he was no longer on her passport?
